Two part dramatisation of Rider Haggard's classic tale of adventure in darkest Africa. In this adaptation, Quartermaine is less the square jawed hero of many film versions, more an ordinary man without endless reserves of bravery and who treats Africans as people. This is not a "PC" version of the story, rather a more thoughtful adaptation than is traditional.

The third in the Earthsearch Trilogy and is a prequel to Series 1 & 2. This is not apparent until much later on, and is really a wholly separate storyline. Arama - a great domed city encased in rock, deep beneath the surface. Generation after generation of people have gone about their lives in a world of finite space and infinite resources - never pondering the many inconistencies around them. They have been taught not to. To them there is only Arama... and Diablo - the evil land against...

Considered one of the most important films in the history of silent pictures, as well as possibly Eisenstein's greatest work, Battleship Potemkin brought Eisenstein's theories of cinema art to the world in a powerful showcase; his emphasis on montage, his stress of intellectual contact, and his treatment of the mass instead of the individual as the protagonist. The film tells the story of the mutiny on the Russian ship Prince Potemkin during the 1905 uprising.

Director D.W. Griffith's expensive, most ambitious silent film masterpiece Intolerance (1916) is one of the milestones and landmarks in cinematic history. Many reviewers and film historians consider it the greatest film of the silent era. The mammoth film was also subtitled: "A Sun-Play of the Ages" and "Love's Struggle Throughout the Ages." Griffith was inspired to make this film after watching the revolutionary Italian silent film epic Cabiria (1914) by director Giovanni...

German director Fritz Lang is best known for the highly influential films from relatively early in his career, especially Metropolis (1927) and M (1931). But he also had a brief Hollywood heyday during the mid 1940s, when he made some of his best films. Scarlet Street has been claimed by film noir. This attribution is understandable. The lighting is dark, with heavy use of shadows. The characters are all shady as well. Kitty is certainly a femme fatale, although hints are dropped that she is an...

BBC Radio science fiction drama serial written by Charles Chilton, first broadcast in 1958 as the series Operation Luna , followed by sequels from the same author including two series of Space Force , plus a sequel by Julian Simpson. Our square-jawed heroes confront the dangers of deep space and boldly charge towards another cliffhanger ending, courageously ignoring the mortal danger, and sometimes overlooking the laws of physics. 72 episodes plus 2 episodes of an interview with Charles Chilton.
